Corporate and Private Cruises
Host your birthday party, family reunion, or corporate function aboard our beloved schooner Roseway!
We are currently able to accommodate up to 35 passengers per Boston's Phase III guidelines for reopening. This represents half of our vessel's normal capacity.
Due to the pandemic, we will be asking all guests to stay above decks during the charter event. However, we will offer guest access to the head (onboard bathroom facilities) throughout the sail. We will also require all World Ocean School crew and all guests to wear masks while on board (except when guests are eating and drinking).
Catering and Bar
We are happy to recommend local caterers—we work with a variety of caterers in the Seaport area who are familiar with the boat and can make recommendations, if you like. Guests can then pay and coordinate directly with the caterer to ensure that their particular specifications are met. Roseway can accommodate a cash bar, open bar, or ticketed bar, but guests are prohibited from bringing their own alcohol on board. All catering and bar costs will be added to the hourly charter rate.
This season, we are charging $1,800 for a two hour sail, or an hourly rate of $900/hour for longer events. This rate is in line with our competitors' prices in this pandemic season and 50% of the final cost is eligible for a tax deduction. Our charter agreement includes a line item for a 15% crew gratuity based on the cost of the charter.

About World Ocean School
World Ocean School provides programs aboard our historic flagship vessel schooner Roseway which challenge a diverse population of students academically, physically, and emotionally. Students' participation in these programs broaden their perspectives of the world, their communities, and themselves.
After 94 years of service, Roseway is one of only three original Grand Banks schooners still sailing strong today. She is a registered U.S. National Historic Landmark operating in Boston and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
